Ethan Dolan is an online star, influencer, and entrepreneur who was born on December 16, 1999, in New Jersey, United States. He is well-known as a former Vine content provider, as well as for his YouTube channel Dolan Twins, where he makes videos with his brother.
There isn’t much information available regarding Ethan Dolan’s childhood, including his school history. Ethan Dolan is the son of Lisa and Sean Dolan, and he has an elder sister, Cameron, and a twin brother, Grayson. His ancestors are from Ireland.
Ethan began wrestling with his brother at a young age, which has helped him maintain a strong physical condition and allowed him to compete in key contests.
Creator of Content
Ethan and his brother Grayson began posting films on the now-defunct short-clips app Vine in May 2013. Their characteristic content was largely comedic, which helped them achieve over six million followers until the site was partially shut down in 2017.
In 2014, the twin brothers launched a YouTube channel called “Dolan Twins,” where they offered stuff comparable to Vine but in a different format. The rather predictable success of Ethan and his brother on this website led to them embarking on the “4OU” global tour in 2016 and winning multiple honors, including Choice Web Star and Choice YouTuber at the Teen Choice Awards.
Ethan and his brother posted videos on YouTube constantly for four years before taking a brief hiatus in March 2018, indicating that they were planning to re-formulate the channel’s innovative ways. In May of that year, they announced that they would be a part of the YouTube series “The Sister Squad,” alongside other well-known content creators Emma Chamberlain and James Charles.
In October 2019, the brothers declared that the programming on their channel would be changing because it no longer reflected their personality and was impacting their emotional well-being and mental health.
This unexpected announcement was brought about by their father’s death in early 2019, which prompted several changes in the brothers’ outlook on life, as Ethan explained in the video “It’s Time To Move On”: ‘Had we not been filming a video every week, we would have been able to spend more time with our family around the time that they needed us.’
I’m 2019 Ethan and his brother Grayson launched their fragrance business Wakeheart, which featured two scents and was a big commercial success. In 2020, the twins launched their first brand line, “Enterlight,” which contained three scents created by the brothers themselves.
Ethan spoke with NYLON Magazine about this milestone in his career, saying, ‘Part of the reason we chose fragrance is because of the confidence it can inspire for an individual.’ It was confirmation of ourselves for us; when we wore certain fragrances, we felt our best. So our main goal in starting this organization was to be able to share that confidence with our audience and the individuals we care about and respect.’
What Happened to Ethan Dolan?
Ethan Dolan was involved in a motorcycle accident in August 2018. Even though the incident was not serious, he spent several days in the hospital recovering and decided to stop riding his bike.
He expressed his feelings about the sad situation on Twitter, acknowledging that he was happy to be alive: ‘I was in a fairly bad motorcycle accident…’ I’m perfectly fine. Somehow. I understand that no matter how talented you are, anything can happen. In general, anything can happen; appreciate each day and be grateful to be alive.’
Ethan is currently in good health and is active on his social media sites and YouTube.
Ethan Dolan was romantically linked with fellow YouTuber Emma Chamberlain in 2018. However, neither of them has responded to the rumors.
More recently, in 2020, it was reported that Ethan was dating the Australian influencer Kristina Alice, who played his romantic interest in the Club Sport music video “Hawaiian Party,” which he and his brother created.
Although their romance appeared to be a fan myth at first, Ethan and Kristina were sighted together on a beach and exchanged Instagram Stories from the same location. In the video “Addressing About Us,” Ethan’s followers enquired about his relationship status, to which he replied that he was in a “serious relationship.”
Even though he has not confirmed the identity of his girlfriend, his followers are certain that Kristina is his present partner: ‘The female he kissed in the song video.’ I believe everyone is aware of this by now. ‘Like read the room,’ one of his fans said on Twitter.
Ethan decided it was time to share their love with the rest of the world, so he began uploading images of Kristina on social media, and she appeared in a Dolan Twins’ live video, during which she stated that she would fly to the United States to visit Ethan.
Kristina’s arrival in the United States was depicted in a VLOG broadcast on the Dolan Twins’ YouTube page in October 2020: ‘I’m not going to lie; it’s been around four months since we’ve seen each other, and I had no idea when we’d be able to see one other again.’
In the video, he also discussed his plans to relocate to Australia to spend more time with Kristina, saying, ‘I applied for my residence, but my application is still being reviewed.’ She was allowed to travel here to visit due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and I don’t know how the f**k it occurred, but I’m grateful.’
Ethan has already uploaded several photos of himself and his girlfriend on his social media platforms.
The Death of Father
Ethan’s father died on January 19, 2019, at the age of fifty, as a result of cancer complications.
Ethan and his twin Grayson purchased a mansion in Hollywood for $2.5 million in September 2019, leaving behind their old property in Encino. Their new home is said to be opulent, with four bedrooms, several comforts, and a large yard.
In terms of personal care, Ethan Dolan began adopting a vegan lifestyle in 2020 after reflecting on his previous eating habits from a moral standpoint: ‘As I reflected on that thinking, I realized that that is simply taking away animals’ rights to live free lives.’
I could never murder an animal, therefore I wasn’t going to have someone do it for me and then buy them at the shop or restaurant.’
‘The shift from eating whatever I wanted to be entirely vegan was truly seamless and one of the easiest things I’ve ever done,’ he stated on Instagram. I had a great day discovering new vegan favorites and vegan alternatives to old favorites. It feels nice to know exactly what I’m putting into my body and how it will affect me. It also feels nice to give back to the world that has given me so much.’
Ethan frequently publishes vegan recipes on his social media platforms, feeling the need to raise awareness about eating habits.
Ethan Dolan will be 20 years old in October 2020.
